Getting Around In Madrid


An experienced pilgrim who has all the answers concerning transport in Madrid has posted this information and I am shamelessly stealing it because it is of great value to the pilgrim.  Thank you Whariwharangi!

Si yo fuera tu ... plan to take a later train."

Here is information for your time appreciation:

Getting around in Madrid

The airport in Madrid is called Barajas (MAD). There are 4 terminals. T1, T2, and T3 are located in one building. T4 and T4S are connected by an Automatic People Mover train. There is a shuttle service that connects all terminals.
